Sports reportingStudy for the NCTJ Sports Diploma

Your route to the press box

Our Foundation Course in multi media journalism lasts for 17 intensive weeks. During the course you will work towards completing the NCTJ’s Diploma in Journalism. As part of this, you will have the chance to learn sports journalism as you progress towards the NCTJ’s Sports reporting examination.

The remainder of the time you will study the same syllabus as those on our news reporting course. This involves completing modules in the core subjects, such as reporting, shorthand, media law, public affairs and an assessed portfolio of sports-related journalism.

Whichever route you take with us you can be assured you will receive the very best tuition and practical experience.

Our sports journalism option has the full support of PA Sport, the biggest sports agency in the UK. You will have full access to the sports wire and have the chance to work on real assignments as you gain more experience.

There may also be the chance to shadow a PA Sport reporter to a top match as well as do live reporting yourself as you gain in experience.

The programme is focused on providing you with the skills you need to convince an employer you are fit for work.

Our next courses run from August 16, 2021 - December 10, 2021

and January 24, 2022 - June 1, 2022

* Please note that, in the event of the government's social distancing guidelines still being in place, our next scheduled courses may be delivered remotely.
